Mouse from Steelseries - Rival 100 - Page 84

post #831 of 1498
How do the switches feel compared to Huanos? I'm looking for something quieter and easier to click since Huanos are just too stiff for my taste.

Very mushy and pretty hard.

Clicks are consistent, not to hard, but it feels as if the mouse its "body" needs more firm clicking then previous SS mice I've used.

Similar results on 500 dpi / 1000 dpi as posted earlier.

I recon this might become a really neat mouse at 500 dpi, but beyond it, it feels horrible (jumps around like crazy even trying to select a single pixel on the desktop). This is most likely going to be "500 dpi or bust".

The shape is the most positive thing though, probably the best one I've ever held in my hands.

EDIT:

Ingame however 1000 dpi feels much more manageable in a 3D environment... hmmz. Also it doesn't seem to malfunction at 4 m/s (though no perfect control at 4 m/s). Behaves a bit like the MX518: http://www.esreality.com/?a=longpost&id=1265679&page=14

I really like the shape and size too. I'm currently using a A4Tech Bloody V3 (with Pixart 3305DK) which is too heavy, the switches feel stiff and I think the sensor is worse than the one in the Rival 100. If I get a Rival 100, I'll be able to play shooters on 500 DPI, but in other games (mobas and such) I'll need to use it at 1000 DPI. If it's really that horrible at >500 DPI, I'll consider buying something else.

Angle snapping?
post #836 of 1498
Movement feels much more natural at 500 dpi though, went from 24% back to my usual accuracy at 500:
http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf4/battlereport/show/1/656170636486635584/329862722/

Time will tell, shape is definitely a big plus, but everything else still feels a bit doubtful.

Also, yes it feels like there's some angle snapping? Can't quite put my finger on it, feels weird, unnatural. It's almost as if I'm using a low FOV bot with this mouse, as if it "sticks" to the targets I aim at, but at the same time it doesn't feel as controlled as a 3366 or 9500 even.

Skates are also to thin, bottom surrounding sensor/lens scrapes from time to time.

just got mine, first impressions:

shape is nice.
cable is great.
glides really well on a zowie G-SR, no scraping like other peoples reports. the feet could be thicker though.
button clicks are just ok (was using a G302 before this, ok is pretty good compared to that mouse's clicks)
scroll wheel is ok.
i wish the side buttons protruded out a bit more, the forward one is almost flush with the side of the shell, the back one comes out far enough.
no 800 dpi step.
could be lighter.
low lift off distance, which is great for me.
i like the top and side grip coating.

will post back in a couple weeks with a review.

How much does it weigh? Some sites say it's 120g, but is that with or without the cable?
